This view from the side of the Nautilus shows a little more of the creature itself. They really are a remarkable design created by our God to give us something new to look at. I wonder when naming the creatures, how would Adam have looked at this animal and not have shuddered. There would have been no fear at that time though, so I can only imagine what went through his head. I know now that many movies have made these beautiful animals into monsters, seemingly morphing them into gigantic size. I am really glad in reality they are small and capable of being handled in the water.
Our oceans really contain some of the most beautiful creatures on our planet. We really need to pay attention to what we are putting in our waters and ultimately, our own bodies as we eat from the bounty that is the sea. This painting completes todays entry number 58 of the 100 days~100 paintings.
